Land Activities – Edmonton

Edmonton land activities

In addition to our paddling options, there will be lots of FREE land activities for you to check out before or after your float, provided by the organizations below! Note that activities and outfitters are subject to change.

In addition to these land activities, ENCOR by EPCOR will be providing family-friendly programming including face painting and a photo booth.
